Ground Your Vata: 7-Minute Ayurveda Meditation
This 7-minute meditation will help you to eliminate busyness of the mind and clear anxiety. It’s rooted in Ayurveda, which is a science based on the elements and the way an individual person is composed of the elements. It advises a person, based on her or his composition, on certain times of the year, certain foods to eat or avoid, and activities to perform to reach a harmony of the elements within one’s self.
With a focus on the exhales, which you can imagine pushing you back down to earth, back down to the ground or whatever holds you, this meditation is like the deflation of excess air in the body.
For people who are feeling an overabundance of the vata element during this vata season (fall and winter), this is so extremely grounding and productive to dealing with fear and anxiety. So important if you’re feeling scattered. Feeling scattered can mean missing a lot of wonderful, important presence.
Vata is represented best by the elements of air, wind and ether. You are likely to have excessive vata during fall and winter if your dosha is predominantly vata. This is the time of year to take care of ourselves, but this meditation works at any time.
A nice hand gesture in case you’re curious is palms down on lap or floor or whatever you’re lying or sitting on. A good mantra if you’re interested in incorporating one of those: “I am grounded.” OR “I am earth.”
